Christmas Red - Pohutukawa

Red as blood,
Like a fire,
Burning the cloud,
Reddening the sky.

You come once a year,
Marking the end of a year,
And beginning of a new season.
Rejoice of re-gathering
Always happens at an agreed time.

What about slowing down your pace?
Working is not all of life.
Occasional relax
Helps you understand the whole.

Let’s thank pohutukawa,
She’s got a warm and caring heart,
Reminding us of the year end.

Therefore we are able to look back
All we have done in the past year.
And look forward to
A brilliant new year!
